British star Chiwetel Ejiofor collected the best actor Bafta for his role as Solomon Northup in 12 Years a Slave.
Cate Blanchett was named best actress for Blue Jasmine.
British director Steve McQueen collected the best film trophy for 12 Years a Slave, and thanked his "one and only mother for having the faith - never give up".
He added: "Right now there are 21 million people in slavery. I just hope that 150 years from now our ambivalence will not allow another film-maker to make this film."
Ejiofor, who was nominated for the Bafta rising star award seven years ago, accepted his award from US actress Uma Thurman.
